Anyone that watched Rose play extensively at the youth levels, which I was fortunate enough to do, knows that she is an incredibly talented, hard working young lady. Those who choose to degrade her are either flat out trolls (fleeced), jealous, or ignorant - or likely some combination of the three. She was and is SPECIAL as a soccer player, so she carried the burden of being better than all of her teammates, even when she was playing in older age groups. As a parent of multiple daughters, I realize how challenging and complicated that can be. In my estimation, she always handled the situation with class. The kid just wanted to be an elite soccer player, and she was willing to work (tirelessly) toward that outcome, and somehow she is criticized for it. Hopefully, everybody in the Cincinnati community will rally behind one of our own, as she will seemingly be a pillar for the WNT for the foreseeable future.
